Today, I had one of those days when all tasks magically doubled themselves. I had a 22 page report due (actually, due tomorrow) and after submitting it, HQ happened to mention that they needed the same report filled out for a separate project and I wouldn't mind, would I? I have a budget due but we have to use some new computerized system that requires regional managers to sign on and sign off . . . good luck chasing them down.
There was other stuff too. . . plus getting ready for the regional manager's meeting later this week. And, there is my guest hosting of a student group complete with age appropriate activities to prepare. It's enough to make a monkey decide a little mental escape is needed.
In my other little world, where I've won 100 million in the lotto . . . this is what I'd be doing this carnival season rather than pushing papers.
Or kicking back on a balcony with a tall, frosty drink and watch the parade pass me by.
